Journal Club

Join us for the AAMC Journal Club – we’ll agree, we’ll disagree, we’ll laugh, we’ll learn. Journal Clubs are a fun and interesting way to improve knowledge of current research, apply research and best practice models to nursing practice and discuss clinical issues.

At the next Journal Club…

The development and implementation of a new respiratory care protocol marks a significant change in the way care is provided to patients with respiratory impairments. At the April Journal Club, learn more about the role of the Respiratory Therapist in the implementation of the protocol. Education on the proper administer of a meter dose inhaler (MDI) will also be reinforced at this presentation.
